Are the number cards going to have a standard layout? (I hope so!) I wasn't a fan of your previous deck's number cards.

I did like how you all four aces where nice and big. I hope that trend continues!

Yes, Aces will be big.....Layout for number cards will still be custom in placement of the pips but it won't be similar to the other deck.

A few more.....

These all look good!

If the placement of the pips will be non-standard, please keep in mind what poker players would be interested in. I mean, imagine a bunch of people who don't care about custom cards, and what would they think. You last deck, I imagine my friends saying, "What's this? This is strange."

If you're going with custom placements, ask yourself what benefit you get out of it. People purchase custom decks mainly for custom backs and face cards. People wanting custom number cards are far, far, far fewer. In most cases, a standard layout with custom pips are the ideal.

Will the Diamonds have the gray oval and Clubs another color? I don't like the gray for some reason. I think it might be because it lacks any color associated on the court person's clothes so the gray stands out more. Would you think of keeping the Heart/Diamond ovals yellow and Spade/Club ovals green?

That is also my preference. I like the yellow better than the gray. One for the red suits and one for the black suits would work.

For you Rich. Saw a couple of other comments. Give me some time to process all these.

Haven't really made comments to date, but love the progress of this deck! That colored Ace looks much better, but I think that the colors used for the feathers is a little dark and doesn't go with the rest of the colors in the deck.

Keep up the great work! :ugdance:

The colored AoS looks much better than b+w. But like @shermjack said the petal colors are too dark and flat looking. You have good lighter blues on some courts that have really nice depth to them. I wonder if you can do the same lighter color blue and another color with depth so the Ace doesn't look so flat? Thanks.

Hi Sunish, great to see you on a new deck project - Nice and colourful!

I too prefer the coloured AoS - though I agree that those feathers might need a tweak to suit the rest of the artwork ... Love the back design! It's happy and intricate at the same time. Personally, I think the colour scheme of the card back could be closer to the courts (if that makes sense)? - but that's just my 2 cents :)

Thanks Annette. Looking forward to Vizago now.

By the way, here is the updated AoS. The design has been updated to give it more traditional look and now it looks more similar to the inspiration (Asoka Pillar)

I like this version much better, however, it looks a little darker. Is it the same color palette as the other spade court cards?

Yes, it is from same palette ( oval border surrounding the character). This was the initial version after the change though but I like the current version.

That said, AoS is different & odd one out from the rest of the aces, but I'm willing to take this risk as it entirely fits the theme. The other thing is that historically AoS is the only one that used to be completely different from the other 3 aces.

This AoS looks much much much better, looks much more like the lion than the previous AoS. Good choice for using the statue as inspiration, it works well. I'm looking forward to this :)
